Welcome to Plumbing and Mechanical Professionals of Virginia


The 2015 PMPV Plumbing Apprentice Competition was held April 28 at the Ferguson Enterprises facility in Gainesville, VA.  Seven talented apprentices spent hours roughing in three-piece bathrooms to exacting standards.

        The seven students represented northern and southeastern Virginia:  Jared A. Beninati of Evan Hibbs Plumbing, Brian Herzing and Justin Ricker of Atomic Plumbing, Daniel Huppert of Unlimited Plumbing and Piping LLC, Shawn Jackson and John Monaghan of Paul Southwick/Pipe Kings  and Alberto Portillo of Alberto’s Plumbing, Inc. 

     The competition was moderated by Paul Keane and Jim Steinle of Atomic Plumbing, Jim Howe of Evan Hibbs Plumbing, James Hurt of My Plumber, Danny Crigler of L&D Associates, Mike Hurt or Long's Corporation and John Walters of Institute for Building Technology and Safety.  

     At the end of the day at a banquet sponsored by Washington Gas, each of the competitors were assessed on the quality of their work.  Jared Beninati took first place, followed by Brian Herzing in second place and John Monaghan in third.  The top two finishers will represent Virginia at the PHCC CONNECT Conference in September in Ft. Lauderdale.
